I was watching this Christian music video show and they interviewed John and Korey Cooper of the rock band Skillet. They make music together, tour across the country and are proud parents. The couple talked about the mountains and valleys of married life in a way that seemed seasoned by wisdom and experience. They looked like a great match and I couldn't help but smile and take a moment to marvel at God's creation of marriage.
Skillet's new album Comatose is some of the best music I've heard from the Christian music scene so be sure to check out their website and myspace page to listen to their awesome song "Rebirthing".
And lastly, here's this interesting picture that I found of them on the web:
(I guess funky hairstyles and reflector pants does a marriage good)
Scriptures on marriage:
God said, "It's not good for the Man to be alone; I'll make him a helper, a companion."
God put the Man into a deep sleep. As he slept he removed one of his ribs and replaced it with flesh. God then used the rib that he had taken from the Man to make Woman and presented her to the Man. The Man said, "Finally! Bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh! Name her Woman for she was made from Man."
Therefore a man leaves his father and mother and embraces his wife. They become one flesh. The two of them, the Man and his Wife, were naked, but they felt no shame.
(from Genesis 2:18 and Genesis 2:21-24, The Message Version)
